New Display



 With everything shut down these days, just when I have a new series of mixed media art I want to share, I have decided to rent a small space at Unique Boutique in Okeechobee Florida.  It has been a really good experience for me. I am looking forward to making more of these fun creations available! 








"At the Edge"


"Shoreline Treasures"

Last Glimmer, sunlit ixora flowers


"Last Glimmer"


This is an update to an older painting of ixora flowers.   I love the way the evening sun is highlighting the leaves and some of the flowers.  I've added some beads to enhance the effect and also hid a little frog on one of the leaves.  Too much fun!

At Riverside, Egret, Palm, Indian River, Florida


"At Riverside"
(Stuart, Florida)
© 2018
Here is an older one I just love! Used some pictures I took during a paint-out at Riverside Park.  I walked all over the park for an hour in the morning, soaking in all the inspiring views before doing some sketches.

This egret was wading along the shore, and I got some pretty good photos of him catching fish.  I liked this one where he jumped up a few times.  

This palm tree was one of two jetting out over the water.  The other palm was bent and crooked, but it was hard to get a good photo.

Lavender Flight, mixed media, knife painting


"Lavender Flight"

This is fun little abstract painting is part of my newest series of mixed media art.  I added some charms and beads for that extra sparkle. For some reason these mixed media paintings tickle me. I love the way the beads show up at different angles of viewing which makes it grab your attention.  (Click on the image for a larger view.)

Gentle Rain, hibiscus, mixed media, knife painting


"Gentle Rain"

This is a larger painting in my new mixed media series.  I built the texture up with thick heavy gesso this time, instead of modeling paste.  Also added some aquarium stones and gems.  I gave the drips of water a little extra shine too.  

Very exciting! The colors and the sparkle are hard to see in this photo, but when the light hits the painting at different angles, they jump out at you!

Original Art, 
20 x 20 x 1 3/4  inches
Mixed Media on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Full Bloom, Tulips, mixed media, impasto painting


"Full Bloom"


Besides the wonderful contrast in value and color, this painting has thick impasto with added gems for a little sparkle from different angles of view!

News Event:  I will be in Sebring for an art show, and will have some prices reduced for the show!  (Lake Placid Art and Fine Crafts Show, on Hwy 27 at the Agri-civic center, just North of Hwy 98)

Honestly, I have not been so inspired in years. This new series of adding found objects, and/or using modeling paste and other materials to build up the texture is challenging and creates so many unique and interesting effects. I think I have finished close to 20 paintings in the last 3 months! Some of them have been sitting around unfinished for over a year!

About this painting:
9 x 12 x 1.5 inches
Mixed Media on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Sides are painted, so framing is optional
$195.00 plus shipping

Eternal Joy, angel, butterflies, mixed media painting


"Eternal Joy"

        This is inspired from a small painting I did years ago called "Endless Song".  This one is less abstract, and the colors are lighter.  I used thick gesso to build up the hair, wings, and plants for an impasto feel.  Also added beads to the headband and the belt, as well as on the gown.  The 3 metal butterflies were the most fun, because they fit so well with the colors I had already painted.  It is like a nice surprise when you see them. Adding a little iridescent paint on the wings, gown and above the head gives it a nice shimmer. When the painting is viewed at different angles, some things really catch your eye.
      Can't explain how tickled I was when I added the extras, I felt like a kid.  I played with  many combinations until finally I was satisfied with this layout.  The butterflies actually made me laugh! 

Original Art, 
11 x 14 inches
Mixed Media on Hardboard

Little Critters, azaleas, flowers, mixed media


"Little Critters"


Part of my new series of adding found objects to my paintings: This is actually an older painting that I reworked.  First I made some corrections to the painting, then added a few beads and gems.  What a delight when the gems reminded me of tiny frogs!  After that I added some glitter paint to tie it all together.  This one makes me laugh!

The painting continues on the sides, so framing is optional.

Flaming Sunset, poinciana, impasto, Florida Art


"Flaming Sunset"

These royal poinciana trees are gorgeous, and really over painted.  Not hard to see why. 
I found this old palette knife painting that needed a few more corrections (it has sat around my studio for a year or so).  I have done a lot of these, so I wanted to do something a little different this time. I built it up with gesso and impasto effects, so the raised flowers really jump off the painting! Very interesting texture and color contrast.

Spring Shoreline,colorful morning


"Spring Shoreline"
(original demo)
11x14 inches
Acrylic on canvas

This was the first of 2, painted this past April.  I created it as a guide, then did the step-by-step painting during class for the second one.  Lots of strong colors, which I love to paint.

The challenging part was getting the waves to curve on the beach,  but everyone captured it nicely.  Each painting turns out unique and different, as I encourage my students to move things around, and use their favorite colors.

$250.00, ready to frame

Healing Waters, spring stream with flowers, summer sale

"Healing Waters"


This is an original demo.  Painted it for an art class, and have used it for a couple of painting classes. That just means there are a few others that are similar, that were created during class.  This was the first, and one of my all time favorites. 

 I am using it to launch my annual summer sale!  (Sold 6 of these demonstration paintings last year!)

Royal Poinciana study, Florida art


"Poinciana Study"
Original class painting
16 x 20 inches, acrylic on canvas
SOLD

Happy New Year!  

This painting was created during a class, while teaching my students how to create similar trees. We used my own photos and sketches as I demonstrated each step of the painting.  

My students are encouraged to move things around, use different colors, and add extra plants or animals to their paintings. Each painting turns out very unique.

Did you know these trees also come in yellow?

Maggie Mae, yellow labrador, animal portrait

"Maggie Mae"
24 x 30 inches
Acrylic on canvas
SOLD


In  memory of Maggie.  Combined different images to put this custom painting together.  The rocks were very challenging! Wanted them to look just like the rocks on her wall.  So many wonderful contrasts: soft fur and hard rocks, pink azaleas and green grass... Yellow butterflies for added accents, just love co-creating custom orders with my clients!

Garden Falls, plein air, stone path


"Garden Falls"
Acrylic on hardboard
9 x 12 inches
$450.00

Got to do a paint out yesterday in Fort Pierce, at the Heathcote Botanical Gardens.  This little waterfall called my name!  It was a lovely day.
 I added quite a bit of detail after I got it home, as it took longer than I anticipated to finish it and proved to be quite challenging. 

Enjoy!

Great Egret, knife painting


Great Egret,  class demo
9 x 12 inches, acrylic knife painting.
(Not Available)


Donated this painting for one of our raffles for the 
Top of the Lake Art Fest,
 as part of a fund raiser for Okeechobee Main Street, 
who puts on the show every year.

This demo painting for my adult class did not start as a knife painting.  We used brushes as I demonstrated each step.  Then I added more detail to finish it up later and got carried away with the thick chunky paint (using a palette knife) for the bark on the tree.  Did more knife work to the rest of the painting also.  But I used a brush for the soft feathers of the egret, and the flowers.  Love the contrast of the thick and thin applications of paint.

Congrats to Gloria Pitsch for winning this painting!

Passion of Flowers, double hibiscus


"Passion of Flowers"
© Fawn McNeill 2008


Love these double hibiscus.  They grow near my driveway.  It blooms in shades of red and peach, and sometimes even yellow.  This painting took a few months, but it finally came together. I wanted some depth, so I put some leaves in front of the red flower and then I was satisfied with it.

Healing Waters, stream with flowers


"Healing Waters Again"
(original class demo)

Created this for the kids summer art program last June (2016).  We used it to create knife paintings.  (This painting was not done with a palette knife.)  Students toned their canvases with base colors of browns and blues with a large flat brush first, then added colors over the top with a knife.  It was a great lesson in texture.

Dawn's Light, impressionism, palms



"Dawn's Light"
© Fawn McNeill 2008


I painted this alla prima, all in one session. Wet-in-wet, fast and loose . . . so fun to do. Very impressionistic. I saw this little palm tree glowing in the early morning sun, the shadows where intensified by the light. It was so beautiful to me. It reminds me of that feeling when you are out camping and it is hard to make things out with all the shadows, then the sun eats away at the darkness and even seems to bite through some of the objects in its path.

Size: 5 x 7 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
